Round 13 Review (Part 2)

Written by Dane on June 14 2021

Melbourne (9.9.63) defeated by Collingwood (11.14.80)

1. Scott Pendlebury (167). The Collingwood skipper took home best on ground honours for his 31 touch (20 contested), 1 goal game that ran a very Pendlebury-esk 87% DE.

2. Braydan Maynard (142). The long-kicking back an had 32 touches and over 600 metres gained off half-back, while running at an even DE than Pendles.

3. Max Gawn (123). Used a huge second half to produce this score. Ultimately finished with 19 touches, 5 tackles, 1 goal and 20 hit outs,

4. Jordan De Goey (115). Spent considerable time in the middle of the ground to collect 32 touches of the sherrin. A sign of things to come?

5. Darcy Cameron/Luke Jackson (113). A tie up in last spot for both of the backup ruckman. Cameron kicked 4 goals from 9 touches, while Jackson kicked 2 goals from 21 touches.

Other 100+ scores: Steven May (111), Clayton Oliver (108)

Disappointment: A couple of premium Pies in Crisp (79) and Sidebottom (74)  couldn’t get into today’s game.

Rookies: Cash cow James Jordon was super once again to finish on 99 points, he collected 23 touches (11 contested) in very limited 57% game time. On the Pies side of things, their best rookie based score came from Lynch (63) and then Poulter (61), while on the other side of things Bianco (23) and Rantall (11) weren’t great. In between those guys was the returning McCreery (50), who kicked 1 goal from 11 touches as well as laying 5 tackles.

Injuries: Young defender Nathan Murphy was subbed off here, only scoring 12 points.
